We have started our Generations of Faith Together (GIFT) program this year remotely .
Our theme this year will be The Year of the Eucharist. We will begin our focus on the Mass.

Create a Mass Journal.
This is just a simple notebook to use while being at or watching Mass. This can be done as a family or individually. Those in Confirmation preparation will create their own journals.
How to use a Mass Journal
Matthew Kelley has some helpful hints about creating and using a Mass Journal. Mass Journal which can be found here: Mass Journal
Above you will find some questions to help you with your Mass Journal.
Each week, please send what you or your family took away from Mass. Was it something in a reading or the Homily? Do you have any "Why do we do that" questions?
Scan or take a picture of Mass Journal and send it each week by Monday to Billb@olvparish.org.
We will be setting up a page on the website with some of your observations and questions. These will be put up anonymously.
